“lovely stay”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

Having read some recent reviews I was a bit concerned for my stay last weekend. I need not have worried. Our room was light and pleasant with a comfy bed and pillows. Bathroom well equipped and the shower powerful and hot.
We made use of the swimming pool and there were pool towels ready in our rooms.
The reception staff were very welcoming, showing us where our room was and booking a taxi for us on request.
Breakfast the next morning was also extremely good.
I would definitely stay here again.

If you are in the military, check out a special offer on the web for De Vere hotels. You can get an on-line voucher for a one night stay at a De Vere hotel depending on availability, and we chose The New Place. It cost us a pound for a double room!Bonus. Main building very nice, with a cosy bar and excellent restaurant. Had scallops and steak, though the wine was a little pricy, the food was five star. The hotel grounds are well maintained, and we spent a warm afternoon out on the patio watching a local team play cricket whilst sinking a few jars. When the weather is good, there is a great lawn for a picnic, and you can bring the dog as it is pooch friendly.
Room was fine. It is chalet type accommodation. Not five star, and probably due a paint job soon. Clean and comfortable though; no dramas with shower, but TV picture reception was dire. However, you should be in the bar on holiday so it didn't matter. Bed comfy, but room did get a little warm, so it may be worth asking for a fan from reception. Hotel has a pool and fitness suite, and a good trim trail around the grounds.
Would we go back? Definitely. Wickham Village round the corner with loads of restaurants. Service good. Relaxing stay. Shop around for best rates though, as the room does not warrant a high price tag, though the rest of the hotel does.

Room Tip: Pre order a fan from reception if the weather is warm. Can imagine it's quite noisy if there is...

We had a few minor issues with the room which they quickly sorted out we had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. They were able to provide veggie sausages and soya milk for breakfast (and soya milk in the coffee lounge). The only downside was that we wanted to know what the dinner menu was before going out for the day, to see if it was suitable for vegans, but the chef only wrote the menu at lunchtime so they couldn't tell us. We will be coming back to this hotel in the future, all the staff we spoke to were courteous and helpful.

Hotel is aimed at the functions market, conference/wedding/cruise passengers. Main building and grounds are superb, dinner and breakfast were excellent, staff very efficient and friendly.

Room design is poor, too little light, no storage, only 3 hangers in the fitted wardrobe. Bedside table blocks the power point for the electric kettle. Swimming pool out of action.

Wickham vilage is well worth visiting.

If you can negotiate a good rate then this is a top rate weekend break stay.

Dear Guest thank you for review on trip advisor, I am pleased that overall you enjoyed your stay.
As a De Vere Venue we cater for very similar markets as hotels with a different focus, which you have noticed in our rooms. We are currently stocking all rooms with brand new hangers to five per wardrobe, and sourcing a bulb which satisfies our commitment to Green Tourism but with higher lumens.
I am sorry that the pool was closed for essential maintenance we try to inconvenience guest a little as possible when this happens.
Please look out for our great offers on our website “Autumn Lovin” for your next top rate weekend break.

Kind regards

Can't believe some of the moaning Minnie's on here.
Stunning old manor house, in amazing grounds.
Decent indoor pool open from 6am to 10pm with no child restrictions (which is good).
Gets 4 star rating because wireless was down for 24 hours (unacceptable in this day and age) and rooms quite dark and slightly dated.

We booked this hotel on an offer for £19 a night, value for money it was great.

The hotel is located within the grounds of a wonderful manor house. The rooms are to the side of the manor house and are well furnished. The only 2 things that let it down were the fact the bed was a double and the rooms only have showers. For the price we paid I can easily forgive this.

If you want a few days away and have a dog to consider the hotel is fantastic. With long walks around the manor house and most rooms on ground floor which open onto grass, you can't go far wrong if you want to keep you're four legged friend happy.

The staff were all very nice and the location can not be beaten.

Great stay over all.

We stayed in 3 rooms as a party of 6 at this hotel. The hotel is located out in the countryside, but conveniently close to Portsmouth, Southampton & Fareham. The grounds of this hotel are beautiful and would make it an ideal location for weddings/parties. Most of the rooms sit in outbuildings of the hotel, as we travelled with a dog, this was particularly helpful. The rooms are furnished to a high standard - the only let down here is the double beds, kingsize tends to be the norm in this sort of hotel. The rooms could also benefit from air conditioning during the summer months, although this did not affect our enjoyment.

The swimming pool area, whilst clean and modern, is a little unimpressive. Sat in the basement of one of the buildings - it was very hot this time of year (July).

Altogether, a lovely stay with very attentive and professional staff. Well done!
